Hi, thanks for visiting my page. Through Virgin Money Giving, you can sponsor me and donations will be quickly processed and passed to charities. Virgin Money Giving is a not for profit organisation and will claim gift aid on a charity's behalf where the donor is eligible for this. I really appreciate all your support and thank you for any donations.

In June 2008 I had a heart attack at the top of Ben A'an and had to be airlifted off to hospital in Stirling then on to the specialist unit in Clydebank for an operation the next morning.

In my youth I used to do a lot of cycling but that gradually dwindled over the years. While I used the bike to get fit after the heart attack it wasn't until a friend did a charity ride last year that I was inspired to get serious about it again. Since then I've been well and truly bitten by the two wheel bug again.

This September I'd ask you to sponsor me here for two rides; 51 miles from Glasgow to Edinburgh on Sunday 11th followed by 60 miles from Manchester to Blackpool overnight on the 17th/18th.
